Dear lovers of music01.01.2023 Local News, Events, Arts & Culture, Lifestyle
Here we are again reunited for the 17th edition of the Gstaad New Year Music Festival! It is already a tremendous success. Our program is mostly dedicated to high female and male voices – from soprano coloratura to high counter tenors – without forgetting those of children.
For the first days of the new year, there is the presence of famous artists – some of whom will be performing in Switzerland for the first time. From baroque music to jazz, the festival will allow you unique and unforgettable journeys from Versailles to Naples, from Salzburg to Odesa. I have tried to vary the musical pleasures to tempt you with a discovery which is different each time and where dance makes its return, as does the spoken voice. Let’s start the New Year together!
